This program focuses on the dynamic relationship between swine nutrition and financial analysis, providing a comprehensive understanding of how the former impacts the economic success of a swine production. Throughout the course, you will gain practical guidance and valuable insights to revolutionize your approach to swine nutrition – feed costs and their influence on profitability, benchmarking as a tool for understanding the economic landscape, and performance optimization through careful examination of nutrition and economic guidelines are among the covered key topics. It is also emphasized how overall performance can be improved through feed distribution, ingredient quality, the manufacturing and delivery processes, and feeding procedures. Upon completing the course, participants will be able to identify areas for improvement and strategically enhance their operations by exploring profit factors like mortality rates, finishing costs, and pig cost per head.
